(b Vidin, Bulgaria, 31 March 1885; d Paris, 2 June 1930).
American painter, draughtsman and printmaker of Bulgarian birth, active in
France. He attended secondary school in Vienna, returning in 1901 to
Bucharest, where his family had settled, and working briefly in the office
of his father’s grain-merchandizing business. He was, however, already
becoming passionately interested in drawing, for which he showed
precocious talent. At the age of 16 he became the lover of a woman who ran
a brothel and was allowed by her to draw the residents. In 1903 he moved
to Munich, where he attended the art school run by Moritz Heymann.
